Crazy rich Asian food

Gourmet Traveller logoGourmet Traveller 13/9/2018 Gourmet Traveller

Has Crazy Rich Asians got you fired up for Singapore? Short of jumping on a plane, and in the absence of an "Asian Bachelor", million-dollar antique earrings or other wish-fulfilment, we've got the next best thing: those tasty, tasty foods.

In the movie Rachel falls in love with Singaporean street food with Nick and Colin and Araminta at Newton Food Centre. For those flavours at home, you could dive into classic satay (or this fantastic Nonya pork variation) or an oyster omelette.

What about chicken rice, a hot-button topic for Singaporeans everywhere? And will you take your laksa lemak or assam-style?

And finally no Singaporean feast is complete without crab. In the movie it's classic Singapore chilli style, but if you want to go with a bit more of a local vibe, try the finger-lickin' goodness of black-pepper crab. Just watch out for your Marchesa gown – designer tulle and crab can be a challenging combination – and don't drink the finger-bowl.

The movie sensation has you hankering for hawker food, and we’ve got you covered whether you're after satay, chilli crab or Hainanese chicken rice. Here's where to find it and how to make these classic Singaporean dishes at home.: Crazy rich Asian food © Provided by Bauer Media Pty Ltd Crazy rich Asian food
